8:00pm
dating and how to live with six filthy roommates who smoked cigarettes and that taught me a lot. but if that's what you learn in college i don't see why you need to spend 200,000 dollars tuition over 4 years to get that. that is typically what many of you spend. politicians tell you to get ahead you have to go to college. >> we need to get you to college get you ready for college get you to college get you graduated from college. >> graduates from four-year colleges are nearly twice as much as high school graduates. an estimated $1 million more over a lifetime. >> a billion dollars? that million dollar figure is impressive and true, but utterly misleading. it is based on comparing salaries of high school verses college grads. but that leaves out the fact that you college students are different from people who don't go to college. you go to college tend to be
8:01pm
more motivated you study in high school you are more likely to show up on time. you earn more money even if you never went to college. you are that population group. the politicians and colleges site the million dollar difference is disgusting. it's what consumer reporters used to call a scam. think about that before you go into debt to get some college degree. these days students are more likely to go into debt. inflation went up college tuition went up 400 percent. tuition goes up because politicians handout so much in loan money and they say everyone needs to go to college. if you want to pay good for you. but know the fact a third of college graduates now work at jobs that require only high school degrees. 60 percent of bartenders have college degrees.
8:02pm
everyone should go to college? give me a break. thanks for joining the students for liberty movement for helping students learn what really counts is liberty. nd so did we on "the fox report" weekend. here is huckabee. >> tonight on huckabee. >> liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. >> taxed out the wazoo. are millionaire liberals waiverring on support for the president's policy? and -- >> we have your back. america support for israel security is unprecedented. >> does our greatest ally in the me mid east trust our president? >> plus, a colorado sheriff explains why he won't enforce his' tough new you gun control law. and breakthrough artist of the year rock the house with the
8:03pm
governor. ♪ ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [ applause ] >> mike: thank you. thank you very much. a great lively audience and a fantastic show lined up for you. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. who would have thought that just over four months after liberals were dancing in the streets over president obama's reelection they are now crying in their beer and some don't even drink beer but they started. because they are are now realizeing that their taxes have gone up. way up in some cases. and obama care which was supposed to save them $2,500 a year is busting their budgets as the cost of their healthcare is soaring. ultraliberal comedian bill maher must have met with his accountant and gotten his tax
8:04pm
bill. here is what he said. >> rich people i'm sure you would agree with this actually do pay the freight in the country. something like 70%. and here in california i just want to say liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. over 50%. i'm willing to pay my share but it is ridiculous. >> mike: like he realizes between the federal tax hike and california's highest income tax in the nation he is going to now be paying about 60% of his income in taxes. and democratic strategist donna brazil who i really respect and like noted that her health insurance was sharply higher than before obama care and she was shocked. donna said this. she said just got off the phone with my healthcare provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. no good answer. well, donna needs to watch my show more! because i have been saying since the passage of obama care
8:05pm
that you cannot add 30 million people to the healthcare system, give them government designed benefits guaranteed to cover people even if they seek coverage after they develop a serious illness requiring lifetime extensive treatment, mandate that the coverage that people neither need nor want have to be had including like forcing 60-year-old women to have maternity benefits and somehow all of that is supposed to cost less money. that is not medicine. that is magic and even bil bill maher is wishing he could get his money back to cover his tax load. i found out that liberals love fair share when they think someone else is going to eat it. why are successful people like bill maher punished severely with a tax rate at 60 60% when many pay nothing? most of us don't hate paying taxes, we just don't want to be played as suckers and pay half or more of our income while
8:06pm
half of the country contributes nothing and drains the tub while collecting endless government giveaways. i don't mind helping people who don't have enough food to eat or medical expenses astronomical because of a disability insure don't mind that making sure military men and women and veterans provided every benefit they were promised. both of us very much mind the stupid spending that is so absurd it would be funny if only liberals had to pay it. for example the $1.7 million taxpayers pay to study why lesbians drink more than the general population. or another $1.5 million to study why lesbians are more overweight gay men. nothing them. but i really don't care why lesbians are fat and drunk. but if someone feels that that needs to be studied then let the curious pay for it. i would rather hold my curiosity and my cash.
8:07pm
look, we just don't have the money for white house tours any more or education funding for our military because of sequestration. but you are telling me we got the money for the hot tunes and wine festival in delaware? i'm glad some of the liberals are beginning to realize that high taxes aren't helping people get out of poverty. we have just as many as ever in poverty. that huge chunk coming out of the paychecks is paying for stuff so embarrassingly stupid that not even liberals approve of it. [ applause ] >> mike: president obama just wrapped up his first trip to israel as president. it began with the president playing nice during a joint press conference with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> my main goal on this trip has been to have an opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when obviously what was already a pretty tough neighborhood has gotten tougher.
8:08pm
and let them know that they have got a friend in the united states. that we have your back. that we consider israel's security of extraordinary importance to us. >> mike: but the next day while speaking to a younger audience the president urged israelis to put themselves in the shoes of palestinians. >> it is not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of their own. [ applause ] >> living their entire lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements not just of those young people but their parents and grandparents every single day. >> mike: how did the visit go over with israelis? joining us is former israeli ambassador to the united nations and president of the the jerusalem center for public affairs. author of the rise of nuclear
8:09pm
iran. hi, great to see you and really happy to have you back. the president says -- >> good to be here, governor. >> mike: the president says israel needs to give something up to get the palestinians to talk. what else can israel give up? >> we go back to the whole issue of israel's future borders that became a subject for the international community back in the six day war in 1967. while israel agreed to make compromises and has made big compromises in the past israel insists at end of the day it have defensible borders because we are not going back to the '67 lines which were armistice lines and not international recognized boundaries. we have to protect ourselves. >> mike: there was one point when the president said something that made my head turn almost completely around
8:10pm
and i'm anxious to get your reaction to it, dore. he said something about the palestinians needing to be able to move around without having a foreign army directing your movement. do you think that many israelis bristolled at the notion they are considered a foreign army in land that is historically, biblically and even militarily over the last 50-60 years theirs? >> not everything is in accord between the u.s. and israeli view and we know that. in the previous speech in cairo the president gave the audience there the impression that israel was a phenomenon that was created after the holocaust, after world war ii but said nothing about our earlier roots in the land and as you know, governor huckabee, you go to the city of david and you can find royal seals of the kingdom of judah and the area of the western wall passageways from the time. the people of israel know they
8:11pm
have deep roots in the land and they just don't go back to world war ii and this time and i think it was very important the president talke talked abor 3,000 year old connection with the land of israel. i think the israelis heard that and were inspired by that. i think american presidents when they come to israel part visionariese is to be and in that element most of us, i would say all of us were satisfied. >> mike: how you do you think israelis react to the press conference with palestinian authority president abbas when the president was standing directly in front of a big huge photo of yasser arafat? >> we know and you know as well that during the period that arafat head the palestinian authority with the head of the plo they engaged in terrorism. the israeli people really made an effort for peace. we agreed on the oslo accords and brought arafat to come to
8:12pm
the georgia da strip and the west bank to set up the palestinian government. and lo and behold after we made the bold move with president clinton at camp david in the summer of 2000 we got the second antifattah and buses blowing up in the hearts of jerusalem and tel aviv and all of our major cities. over a thousand israelis killed. and as a result of a security situation that emnated from a poorly implemented peace process. now, i think israelis feel that we have to be past the arafat era and be in a new era of mutual recognition and real security and that is why prime minister netanyahu as he tries to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a frosty relationship
8:13pm
between the president and prime minister netanyahu. all of that is well and good anda you hope to see a warmer and more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that is an excellent question, governor. because in our private discussions the subject has come up. sometimes you have is a warmer relationship with american presidents and sometimes a colder relationship. obviously president obama made a strategic decision to warm up relations with israel at this time. you know what, even if you have the best friend in the white house, and israelis look fondly upon the period of president clinton or the period especially of president regan. ultimately israelis have to make the choices. winston churchill people said was a great friend of israel and came to the founding in the 1920s and supported the zionist cause of the return of the jews
8:14pm
to the homeland. he didn't send the royal air force to bomb the tracks, the railroad track to auschwitz. ifial detects its very existences is threatened israel will have to do what is necessary to deitself. hopefully we won't have is to get to that point but israel must reserve the right to defend itself by itself. that is a clause that president obama used in a number of his speeches. >> mike: we hope it doesn't come to that but i is have every confidence if it does israel will act always in its best interest which is really the best interest of the world. dore, thanks for joining us. a real pleasure. this week, colorado became the first state outside the
8:15pm
east coast to pass tough gun control laws in response to last year's shootings in a movie theaterrer in aurora, colorado and at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. several sheriff's say they will not enforce the new laws in their counties and i will ask one why, when we come back. i would like to hear from you. go to mikehuckabee .com and tell me what you think on the feedback section or sign up for my facebook page and follow me on twitter. find the linkkkkkk the husqvarna all-wheel-drive mower is here. engineered with a unique drive system and dual transmission. all-wheel traction. all-wheel power. all done. only from husqvarna. challenge the impossible.

8:18pm
>> mike: on wednesday colorado's governor john chickenlooper signed three new laws on hickenlooper signed three new laws for gun control. several of the state sheriff's have been critical of the law saying they are not going to stop criminals from getting guns and here is how the governor responded.
8:19pm
>> the county sheriff's reflect a more rural part of the state generally. again, the police chiefs support the bills. so again that is part of that urban/rural divide that i intend to work very hard to mend. the well county sheriff says he will not enforce the new measures and he is filing a lawsuit against the state. he so joining us now. a real pleasure to have you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you, governor. a pleasure to be here. >> mike: when i heard the statement by the governor i was thinking he tried to make the rural versus urban almost as if he was saying intelligent and thoughtful versus uneducated and out in the country in the sticks. i was kind of offended by that. the sheriff's are elected by people and have to be responsible to and most police chiefs are appointed by political peoplion people who are bureaucrats. how did you react to the governor's comment? >> well, governor, it doesn't
8:20pm
surprise me that governor hickenlooper would say that. in an interview you a couple of years ago said the people of rural colorado and on the western slope are slow thinkers. when the governor said that it did not surprise me at all. this is not a rural versus urban issue because it is about our liberties. it is about our freedom and our right to self-defense and those issues transcend whether you live in the city or the county. >> mike: the push is that the laws are going to somehow make everybody safer and we will be better off. every -- again, you used the term of the street cops, i never talked to one who said boy, i really hope that we take away the capacity of a magazine for a legal gun owner because that will make us safe because they know the crooks aren't going to turn the magazines in and say i know now i'm only supposed to have five rounds so let me turn this in and if you
8:21pm
could exchange it for one that only has five. i think everybody has the common sense to know. to what is the disconnect with some of the politicians and why is it they don't understand that they are going to be asking the wrong people to give up the wrong thing? >> well, i think it is a knee jerk rehction. they are politicians who say we have to do something, anything, even if the laws don't make sense it shows that we are doing something. and you're right, the criminals are not going to go get a background check. one is not going to say to another before i give you this stolen gun for that meth we need to get a background check. that is not going to work. >> mike: no, no. >> as far as the magazine bill who are we to say how many rounds a person needs to protect them and their family? there is a very big disconnect and it is really unfortunate because these gun laws are unenforceable. >> mike: and another thing that i guess needs to be brought in
8:22pm
you have industries saying they are going to leave colorado if that goes through. mag pool that makes magazines, that is what you are hearing. how does that affect colorado? >> they are a well county company and they are leaving colorado. it is not just a threat. they will take 200 to 400 jobs with them. you hear the democrats say jobs, jobs, jobs. that is just a lie. they don't care mag pole will take 200 to 400 jobs. there are other companies that work with mag pole that said they will leave the state as well and take jobs with them. one company said they will do a million dollars expansion and they put that on hold. not just those jobs it is the construction jobs that go along with it. they he just don't care who they h hurt when they come up with the gun laws. >> mike: sounds like they are putting the wrong people out of business. out to be putting the criminals out of business rather than
8:23pm
legitimate law abiding companies. thank you very much. pleasure to have you here. >> i appreciate it. >> mike: democrats say the sequester is so bad that congressional aides can't even get a decent meal and nancy pelosi goes cuckoo for college basketball. my reaction to the quotes of the week is coming up next. ♪ some people will do anything to help eliminatlitter box odor. ♪ discover tidy cats pure nature. clping litter with natural cedar, pine, and corn. polaris has what you wan legdary atvs led by the powerful sportsman 850 ho.

♪ >> mike: you could be living right next door to a spy. this sunday night at 9:00 eastern fox files reports on the deep cover spies. playing a dangerous game of espionage. people like aldred james whose palms were also getting greased
8:27pm
with the soviet union. >> with ill gotten cash, ames and his new wife were living it up. the old slob with the untucked shirt was no more. >> wonderful suits. he was extremely arrogant. it was just a different person. totally different personality. >> and it was this new rick who would come under scrutiny when the agency went looking for a trader within. don't miss fox files sunday night at 9:00 eastern right after this show. all right. a junior at florida atlantic university was suspended after he refused to participate in a class activity in his intercultural communications class. the professor instructed students to take out a sheet of paper and write jesus in bold letters and put it on the floor and stomp it. when ryan refused he was suspended. >> any time you stomp on something it shows that you believe that something has no
8:28pm
value. so if you were to symptom on the word jesus it says that the word has no value. i'm not going to be sitting in a class having my religious rights desecrated. >> mike: good for you, ryan. this is very frustrating because i think abou this protr putting jesus on the paper and saying stomp on it. wonder if he would have put mohammad on the paper and asked the students to stomp on it. ryan could have taken out the piece of paper and write jesus and turn it over and write the professor's name and put it on the floor and stomp the daylights out of it. well, they call the ncaa men's basketball tournament march madness and some of the results of the first round justified the nickname. unknown florida gulf coast pulled off a shocker be beating powerhouse georgetown and 14th seed harvard knocked out number three seed, new mexico.

we got some fans here on that one. even house minority leader nancy pelosi went a little batty when asked who she was pulling for in the big dance. >> i have a lot of allegiances to many of those schools. i don't even want anybody to lose. i'm just rooting for everybody, especially the players. i want them all to succeed whatever team they are on. i'm -- i'm march mad. i'm addicted to basketball. i mean all sports but college basketball very exciting. >> mike: really? i bet you she couldn't name three players playing ncaa basketball.

8:30pm
att is like the ridiculous at attitude going around that everybody gets a trophy. not you. state senator says that things have gotten out of hand and good for him. he introduced a bill restricting schools from suspending children who make gun gesture. it is in reaction to a 7-year-old being suspended for two days because he made a gun out of a pop tart during snack time. >> it was already i just kept biting it and tore off the top and it looked like a gun. >> mike: that was dangerous. i would like to ask how many people have been killed by a pop tart in the shape of a gun. in honor of the kid -- uh-oh. i will use my practice rounds.
8:31pm
you you know, i didn't remember these things being that good when i was a kid. well, a philadelphia abortion doctor is now on trial for the brutal murders of babies after they were born. coming up, two women who experienced the horrors of abortion clinics firsthand. they will tell us why they are now on a mission to put an end to the practice.

8:36pm
>> in early 2011 philadelphia prosecutors released the disturbing grand jury report on the women's medical center owned by dr. kermit gosnell. the doctor, his wife and 8 employee hes were all arrested. the clinic was filled with unspeakable horrors. body parts found in garbage bags. unsan tare arery operating rooms and insufficient equipment to protect the mother during or after the procedure. according to the district attorney the late term abortions performed were frequent and gruesome. >> in case after case the doctor and his assistants induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, 7th and 8th months of pregnancy and then killed the babies by cutting into the back of their necks with scissors and severing their spinal cords. mika he is also charged with
8:37pm
the murder of 41-year-old who died from being given too much anesthesia. he knew the employees whod a administered the drugs were not trained, authorized or licensed to do so. he pleaded not guilty. the lawyer denies the murder charge and challenges the gestational age of the abort fetuses. the doctor showed no remorse for his actions. >> a friend recently said that i had a distinguished career and i cannot have control over the accomplishments in terms of how people view them but i know that i have done my very best to provide the best of responsive care to my patients. >> mike: abbey johnson used to work at planned parenthood helping women get abortions but left her job after witnessing an abortion take place. she is now an outspoken prolife
8:38pm
activist. deborah edge is the single mother of 7 kids and also worked in an abortion clinic but finally left after she couldn't bear to deal with the horrors that she witnessed there. both women are are trying to convince others to leave their jobs in the abortion industry. abbey and deborah, great to have you both. when you hear the story of dr. gosnell i think it is bone chilling to hear this hideous thing. are you surprised by the kind of practices that have bee described in his trial? >> not surprised at all. it is something that i have seen year after the year and it is very depressing but it is no i'm not surprised. surprised that the babies are being killed like that, yes. i'm not surprised that he was doing that in his office. >> mike: you saw things similar to that the industry? >> not only did i see. i was actually there in the o.r. room assisting during procedures like this. >> mike: it is just beyond
8:39pm
imagination that we do that in america any more. abbey, i know that you have been here before. we talked about what you saw as the turning point. were you surprised by what you saw here? >> i think the heinous nature of what was taking place to these women and children is, of course, shocking and it should be shocking to any one. but to know that it was taking place inside of an abortion clinic, no, i can't say that i was shocked to hear that. these abortionists will pretty much do anything for a paycheck. and you know, gosnell was charging 4 or 5, $6,000 for women to take the lives of their unborn children. i can't say i was really shocked. >> mike: in this case with gosnell some of the staffers were being charged as well as gosnell. deborah, whether you worried in the years in which you worked at the industry you would be aaccused of a crime and
8:40pm
charged? >> i started at young age. my way of thinking now, it is a lot different now that my kids are growing up and i love to see my kids live and it is just real different and i think the biggest thing that i notice, i left and came back actually because the money was a little bit better than other jobs so that was my focus was trying to make it and pay my bills by working there. and it is really hard to explain but i started getting -- started seeing things that i didn't like now this time that i went back. it just got really bad. i don't know if it was the economy or what it was that made this doctor act like this but it was crucial. it was crucial and i didn't like it and i decided that i would take notes and then i started hearing about abbey johnson and protesters at the gate and they he gave me a flyer and i wrapped it up and put it in my pocket and said i will need this. it said if you were being a part of this you could also get
8:41pm
prosecuted. i started saying i don't want to be a part of this either and i started just taking notes and one thing led to another and i ended up out of the industry and contacted ms. joh johnson e has been wonderful. >> mike: when we come back we will talk about how abbey, deborah and others were able to walk away from the horrible industry and how they are industry and how they are trying to get others to d d d d [ male announcer ] let's say you pay your guy around 2% to manage your money. that's not much, you think. except it's 2% every year. go to e-trade and find out how much our advice and guidance costs. spoiler alert: it's low. it's guidance on your terms, not ours. e-trade. less for us. more for you. it's guidance on your terms, not ours. looking for a litter with natural ingredients that helps neutralize odors. discover tidy cats pure nature. uniquely formulated with cedar, pine, and corn.

8:45pm
>> mike: abbey and deborah join us again. before the break you spoke of the time when you said i'm out of here. what was the turning point? you worked in the industry for a long time. what was it that finally woke you up and said this is just immoral? there is so many things that woke we up. i just decided to take a stand and so i was -- he was very fond of me because i was always good at speaking my mind and giving him good advice and i think he came to me to ask me and i was very blunt about how i felt and i asked me about something that was going around in the clinic on a sexual harassment case and i told him that i knew about it and i was aware of it and if i were to be asked i would tell the truth. i think right then and there i dehe sided to take a stand and that is when i took my stand from seeing women being
8:46pm

dollars go there. did you feel like your job was to hear their story and let them make a decision and lead them to "choice" or was it to encourage them or sell them on the abortion? >> it was to sell them on the abortion. 98% of pregnant women who walk into planned parent hood clinics will have an abortion. they don't provide prenatal care or pregnancy care for women except for abortions. >> we are told it is about mammograms and prenatal care. you are telling me planned parenthood is primarily an abortion factory? >> absolutely. we saw women come in over and over again. we performed abortions on young girls as young as 10 years old. >> mike: ten? >> yes. >> and parents approved of this? >> mike: yes, he. and studies show that 70% of women choosing abortions feel coerced or pressured into

clinics in houston. one which is a texas ambulatory surgical center in houston. he goes up to 25 weeks and then the clinic which does abortions under 15 weeks. it was two clinics with skeleton staff. and most of the staff wasn't even trained to do, you know. they don't have no medical background. and when was desperate he would put the person in the front desk in the back to help with instruments you know and the o.r. room. >> mike: i'm glad both of you are out of this horrid business and delightd that you are not only out of it but helping to get others to make the exodus out of a horrid, lucrative but disgusting industry. one of the hottest new
